Track Name: Evergreen
watch me start unraveling
right when i stop listening;
saying all these things i don't mean
while shivering down through my knees.

oh, what's happened to me?

spend all my times wandering
when you were there in front of me;
both sick of living in betweens
like rivers to a deep sea.

oh, what's happened to me?

we talk all night
torture our insides.
if we could step back a bit
and live up to all of it,
i know you'd stop asking

what's happened to me.

all this time
that i've wasted trying-

but let the records show that i,
that i looked far and wide for you.

throw all my thoughts forest deep
and watch all the trees evergreen.

if i had a way, i would cup your face
in hopes you'd look at me the same

because you'd know what's happened to me.
Track Name: Last Lines
it's a bit of a problem;
you don't know a thing about me.

it's not that i solved it,
it's just that i'm giving up.

on our way out,
i'll say it again

i will come out when i feel that i am ready,
i might make you wait until you hate me.

we're all of these sleepless nights
we all eat ourselves alive
but it's all part of stories
that only come out at night

and in the last lines

i'll say it again.

i will come out when i feel that i am ready,
i might make you wait until you hate me.

we're all of these sleepless nights
we all eat ourselves alive
but it's all part of stories
and these are our last lines

in our last lines,
I'll say it again

i will come out when i feel that i am ready,
i might make you wait until you hate me.
Track Name: The Hunt
There's something in the moon that tells you I've lost
and the second I notice, I know I should run

because I've been all your bitter songs.
I've been all your bitter thoughts.

Thinking, "It's alright, it's over now.
Just take my love and run."

But then you found me in the bathroom
with my hands on my face

and you asked, "Can I have you in another time and place?"

and I said, "I'm sorry, babe. I've lost it again."

"It's alright, it's over now.
Just take my love and run.

I'll run and you'll live in me but for what?

You found me in the bathroom with my hands on my face

and I asked, "Can I have you?"

and you said, "Not this way."
Track Name: Little Jay
There's a moment that comes
after tossing sheets,
after a night of no sleep

where there is nothing to hide
all these things that are so revealing.

You are the sun, you forgave at night
when I was lost for all that time.

I began to realize that I felt unworthy
and that I had no name unless you screamed mine.

I've only seen what you've wanted me to see
and when I looked underneath, I found nothing.

It gives me reasons to be running so far
away from these days and onto better ones.

You are the sun, you forgave at night.
Track Name: Count The Steps
waste your body through the day,
walk for miles in your head.

you said you were always alone inside
but i never knew what you meant.

keep your hand in hers,
she gives you what you need at night,
but once she rolls and closes her eyes,
do you feel okay? does it even seem right?

oh, oh, oh.

so, count the steps until i explode;
a million pieces for the birds
and when they come to gather me up
will you even be there?
Track Name: To Be Alive
That sound. The night's gone.
I know what I'm not to you.

What hurts more than memories is what you do without me.

I'll give it up all right here;
I'll give in to this nightmare
where I'm awake
and I'm afraid.

I need your love more than you'll ever know.

I see your ghost everywhere I go.

Lying here in a foreign bed
wondering what you meant when you said
that you wished us empty. That broke all of me.

I'll blame it all on timing.
I'll throw myself into beds
that don't belong to me
and I'll feel empty.


I need your love more than you'll ever know.

I see your ghost everywhere I go.

As much as I knew that you were just dying
to let me go, I kept trying to stay here
and fight for you.

As much as I knew that you didn't have it
in you to tell me that these were just habits
of being so naive.

I need your love more than you'll ever know.

I see your ghost everywhere I go.
Track Name: Desperate
I'll breath in whatever's in the wind
if it means we can be what we could've been.

When it's cold in cities that I don't belong to,
I want to blame you.

I spent all that time desperate;
Breaking my own heart as you held it.

I miss you so much that I'm fighting
to not let this love die right here
and because of me.

I know we're changing
with every single try

but I know it's worth the waiting;
to feel fire before it dies.
Track Name: Walk Home
Leave me in this field,
left to withstand the rain.
Watch my limbs give;
My body will become tame.

Don't think twice, don't worry for a second.
Please just let me here before you regret me again.

I'm just the walk home;
A comfort you find when you're cold.

Your mind mirrors mine
as I watch you sleep right next to me.

The morning sun from blinds to sheets.
You lay divided by the lights leaks
and it confuses me.

I'm just the walk home;
A comfort you find when you're cold.

In finding all these things that tore us,
I'm starting to believe it's me I'm unsure of.

I know that I should go.

So, by this time tomorrow, I'll be gone.
Track Name: Waking Birds
I broke the one promise I said that I would keep.
I broke your heart as if it was nothing
but that wasn't me.

I would have fought for the right for us to simply speak.

Tell me, how is it that you love me at all?

You should just treat me like a ghost,
tell me that I'll never feel like home
like I use to.

Tell me that no matter what I do,
I've lost the trait of being safe for your heart.

Then, I'll swallow all this guilt
and I'll let my eyes fill
until I fall asleep, eventually.

Tell me, how is it that you love me at all?

The sound of waking birds.
The clouds moving north.
The wind creaking panes
again.
Track Name: Father Said
i fell into love
i didn't know what was coming
i'd always followed your footsteps and their echoes

i read every page
and it said all the things it should say
but i still doubt your ways
in this hell so i'll hold my own place

father, he hold me so
but it was so damn long ago

he said, "sometimes the rain, it falls,
but sometimes it's not from the sky at all"

so i said, "hey, please stay.
i said all the thing i should say."

but he just held his head
up to the bird instead

oh, i don't mind;
i'm on my own and it's fine.

i have to figure this out on my own.
Track Name: Where I Go When There's No One
i left all my friends at home
just to find some space to be alone

violent in my sentiment,
there's no sense in it,
it just makes holes

i wage wars inside myself
like there's no one else,
defenseless.

i break my own tired heart
and that is all i am left with

so i give up.

(it's something we believe but we don't know a thing about
and i'm learning brand new patience while we figure it out)
